Bio

I was born in South Africa lived in NZ for a few years now I reside in Brisbane . I started rapping at 15 , just doing remixes of other people's songs . At 17 I eventually , with the help of my best mate and producer Kirith Sookroo I released my first Mixtape , called Be real Son , this received positive reviews from my peers but i still wasn't sure what my sound or style was yet . At 18 I came together with a new group of brothers Nate Rain , Charlez Tuitahi and Ia TuiTahi . With them i was able learn and grow more as an artist . At this point I decided to not limit myself to one style/sound of rapping I now try to embrace all aspects of the genre . Subsequently I released my first EP Dominus . Since then I have been working secularly while still trying to write music and release tracks while traveling between our studio in NZ and my home in Aus , I have planned to release my second ep in early 2013 . Big Thanks to Kirith Sookroo Nate Rain Charles's Rain Ia Tuitahi

This is a pretty thudding urban track with a big hook and bigger raps from John (or Tubby T as I briefly remember him!). I reckon the only thing I'd change would be the tone of that synth lead - it's a bit dissonant for four minutes straight.
